Influenster x Yves Saint Laurent Voxbox

I always get so excited whenever a voxbox is on it's way and even though this is only my second, I seriously think this one is the best so far! Yes, a Yves Saint Laurent voxbox. How much better can it get? This voxbox contains the re-released YSL false lash effect mascara with the remastered formula.

Now I know it's been a long time since I've done a makeup review and funny enough that's how I started my blog but I have a good reason as to why I don't do them as often anymore! When I first started my blog, I was buying and reviewing makeup products 24/7 and ended up accumulating so much stuff that I wasn't even using up anything! I just kept buying and buying! I decided to quit that habit and now I'm more careful about which products I'm buying and if it's worth it or not. This Yves Saint Laurent mascara? Defiantly worth it even for a ex-makeup hoarder like me.

I've never tried any YSL mascaras in the past but I'm already hooked on this one after one use! I already have long lashes but they're quite thin so I'm always looking for a mascara that will give them volume in no time. I defiantly achieved that look with this mascara which now has a triple intensity formula: intense volume, intense color, and intense care. How does it have intense care exactly? The formula contains B5 pro-vitamin which helps to strengthen and protect your lashes!



As you can tell from the photos, my lashes look dramatically different after two coats. I noticed it gave it a bit of a curl without having to use a eyelash curler so I can now skip that step! I've also noticed my lashes don't feel flaky or brittle as they normally would with mascara. They just feel soft which I'm assuming is due to the unique formula. The best part is that my lashes stayed like this the whole day! No need for any touch-ups or extra coats, quite impressive.

Overall, I'm pleased with the product and I'm so glad I was able to test it out cause now I have a new favorite! And can we just talk about the gorgeous packaging that YSL makeup is known for? A gold mascara tube just screams luxury :)

Thanks for reading!

  1. Cool, but the mascara is a bit too whispy for me! I don't enjoy clumps in my lashes, but I definitely like for them to look a little thicker - but I don't go for the natural look with my lashes though!

    1. I agree, the mascara defiantly gives a far more natural look! Thanks for commenting Erika!
